Chicago's Midway Airport is about to be a lot more user-friendly. It's all thanks to a massive $323 million modernization project that started Friday (October 6). It includes a new security checkpoint and bridge expansion, and is slated to be finished in 2019.
The security pavilion will be 80,000 square feet. It will allow for more security lanes, enhanced technology, and a single checkpoint system that will double TSA screening capacity.
The best part is, there is no planned cost to the taxpayers.
